Wednesday morning musings and 138 days…

Filed under: Morning Musings, stuff to buy — jackie @ 9:47 am

until the holidays. 

Good morning readers…

It’s Weds. and I promised I would post links to sites that sell handmde items as well as ideas and tutorials for making cool gifts for your friends and family.

Don’t forget that I will also be posting ideas on the “Gift ideas for the book artist in your lifeâ€? page. If you have anything you’d like to see listed there please let me know.

This week’s sites were sent in by readers:

Cuteable.com features many handmade products on their blog.

Dawanda.com looks to be the European equivalent to Etsy. Lots of great handmade stuff on this site.

Of note:

Janette Heffernan and Peter Goodwin have a new video coming out titled The Leather Bound Book. I am lucky to have recieved a pre release copy and hope to have a full review for you by the end of the week. While you’re waiting check out the little teasers on YouTube.

I hope everyone has a great day.

  1. re “Gift ideas for the book artist in your lifeâ€? : my friend has been to Chicago lately, getting some material for me from Aiko’s Art Materials. They sell online, too (http://www.aikosart.com/), but my friend said their local product range is way wider than on the internet, and they are very kind and supportive when you need help with your choice. They carry a huge range of japanese papers, as well as japanese bookbinding (and woodworking) supplies.

  2. I would love to be able to visit Aikos in person. Thanks for the reminder. I’ll add that one to the list.

  3. Last year my hubby ordered some things from http://www.paper-source.com for my birthday gifts. Just thought you may want to add it to your list of sites for Gift ideas for the book artist in your life.
